For those that regularly frequent my website, you will know that I am extremely fascinated by all aspects of the paranormal.
Ever since I was a child, I have gravitated towards the study of ghosts, spirits, hauntings and mediums. In one form or another, and for reasons simply unknown to me, I have always felt pulled in this direction; full of an appetite to learn more and more about such things. So when I found out that international TV psychic medium Nicky Alan was doing a show close by, I knew I had to attend. I instinctively wanted to see this woman at work.
Nicky Alan herself is open to sharing details of her gift, and of how she came to discover she possessed it. Born in 1970, Nicky was the grand daughter of a seventh son of a seventh son, paternal side, from the East end of London. She found quite early on that she could see spirits. She had premonitions, psychic dreams and visitations. For a number of years, Nicky worked as a Police Detective, however, fate turned her life around one evening when she attended an evening of clairvoyance.
Nicky was sitting in the audience when she saw three figures appear at a window. One of the figures waved to her. After a moment, Nicky realised these figures were spirits. They gave her their names – and she discovered, amazingly, that they were family of the medium who was running that evening’s event. Nicky knew from there on, that her life was to be devoted to this gift.
Nicky runs many events; she does private readings, intimate group sessions, and live theatre shows. When I had the chance to see Nicky in action at Lupton House, Brixham (an event which sold out almost as soon as it went on sale!) I was thrilled to be able to attend, and see for myself her work, and how she shared this unusual gift.
A Night with Nicky Alan: Lupton House 24th October 2012
I will be honest with you; I did not know what to expect. Whilst I freely admit to believing in the spirit world, and have even had some experiences of my own, I have always felt quite unsure about the gift of mediumship and clairvoyance.
I wasn’t sure what to believe, what to trust, or what to think about those who claimed they had such a gift. However, Nicky Alan changed this for me. Her work, professionalism, accuracy and warmth really impresed me.
The night began with an introduction from Nicky about herself, her life and hopes for the evening. Immediately I warmed to her; she came across as sincere, warm and caring, whilst maintaining an air of matter-of-factness about a subject many of us in the audience were completely unsure about, or skeptical about. Her die-hard belief, commitment and certainty on the issue of life-after-death was inspiring. I am sure she could reach into the most hardened, skeptical hearts who attended that evening.
The proof is in the pudding, as they say. As the evening moved on, Nicky began engaging with the spirit world, trying to link the spirits she was in contact with to members of the audience.
This was the part I was waiting for: How accurate was Nicky going to be? Were the messages going to be vague? I was not disappointed. Nicky sped through the evening with such force and energy because the spirits were literally lining up for her – one could almost feel the way she was trying to pass on messages, comments and details whilst literally hearing the next message coming through. It seemed to be an intense experience for her: fast-paced, emotional, and demanding. Tiring, perhaps!
Nicky’s work seemed to be, for want of a better term, spot-on! I was astounded at times when Nicky herself located people in the audience to pass on messages; she didn’t need to wait for people to volunteer information or ask questions, Nicky was finding them.
Within many messages received, Nicky brought forward so many stories - unique and personal to each individual she spoke to. Pet names. Dates. Even details of homes. She described photographs in the home of audience members she could never have seen. Gave accounts of moments she could never have been privvy to. Nicky passed on messages which seemed so precise and exact, to the extent that I had was astounded at times.
Audience members were captivated; Nicky was inspiring. Her rich and vibrant personality really warmed the venue. She came over as being so sincere with her messages that many people were left in tears. I looked around the venue at times and people seemed absolutely enraptured by the work she was doing.
I did not receive – nor expect – a message from anybody from the spirit world, but I still took something away from that evening: A trust in a truth I had always suspected. A truth summed up in just a few words: There is more to life than meets the eye. I felt like Nicky confirmed this truth for many people in the audience. That there is something after the moment of physical death has been explored by many people the world over, and I truly believe people with a gift, such as Nicky, are doing beautiful work. Work that can easily enrich the lives of those around them.

I have to say, after having attended Nicky Alan’s event with an open mind, I came away trusting in her and her gift. Of course, there will always be non-believers, or doubters, and that is fine. I am not here to sway people one way or the other, I am simply here to share how the evening with Nicky made me feel.
If you ever have a chance to see one of Nicky’s shows, or to attend a private reading, I highly recommend it. It doesn’t matter if you’re a staunch believer or a skeptic: if the spirits exist, then they will be there. Luckily, our attitudes don’t have the ability to altar truth or fact. Whether for a night of entertainment, or curiosity, or out of the hunger to contact a loved one, I feel Nicky’s shows bring something of value to everybody.
